Koke would be a perfect fit for Manchester United.

The club certainly need a creative midfielder to boost their midfield as at the moment there is a genuine lack of creativity within the team.

Koke has been labelled the next 'Xavi' by the Spanish media, which clearly goes someway to suggest how much talent the youngster really has.

He first came to the attention of the Spanish media when he set the U17 World Cup alight in 2009, with Spain finishing 3rd. From there Koke has emerged as one of Spain's most exciting young talents over the past 12 months. 

United crave creativity and Koke is a player David Moyes should seriously look at acquiring.

The 21-year-old has started this season in magnificent fashion for current club Atletico Madrid. 

According to Squawka, Koke has managed to score two goals for the Atletico this season in the Spanish league, whilst also laying on 17 chances for his team-mates, in which a total of six have been converted into goals.

There is no doubt however, that if United were planning on securing the player's signature, they would have to pay a significant amount of money.

Koke is for sure a wanted player around the world, with rumoured interest from Barcelona. 

Koke just fits the bill as far as United are concerned. He is such a talented attacking midfielder. We have seen how many chances he has managed to rack up so far this season, something which United crave . The Atletico Madrid star is billed as a set piece specialist also, which could be rather useful if United were to sign him.

He also appears to be a very direct player. He makes a lot of key passes in the final third which again would be something United need. He can also chip in with a few goals from midfield as we have looked at, which is of massive use. On top of this he is a player that is good at keeping the ball, something which United have struggled with so far this season.

But of-course, United would need to splash the cash for this wanted youngster.

It is a possibility that United could move for the Spanish midfielder in January, but it is more probable that the club would move for the player in the summer, if they were to target him.
